About this event
How can science diplomacy support the global governance of Genome Editing? Discover pivotal discussions around the disrupting potential of Genome Editing and international cooperating in the Covid-19 aftermath!
Genome editing is a fast-growing field that is poised to bring unprecedented disruption in medicine. Technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 have the capacity to redefine our future as humans. In this context, science diplomacy is called to play a pivotal role in discussing research, bioethics, and regulation of genome editing worldwide.
This session aims to analyze the state of the art in the emerging global governance of human gene editing and how countries can develop governance frameworks and arrive at commonly agreed principles. Finally, it will reflect on how science diplomacy can help build a common global interest in human gene editing applications.
